Nonsensical Thoughts About Murexes

Murex are Sentient ships that seem to appear every so often in the Veil Proxima. They were also one half of the two-pronged Scarlet Spear operation. These colossal, rib-caged ships are menacing sights to behold, appearing from the darkness and disappearing just as quickly. But these ships are completely insane. They were chased off by strange, scrambled signals in Scarlet Spear, yet just hang uselessly in the dark during Sentient Anomaly missions. What is going on with these ships? Murex make no sense! So we have ships that can travel super fast. At least fast enough to zoom away after… [Continue Reading]

The Ropalolyst – The Worst Best Boss or the Best Worst Boss?

Ah, Nightwave. Bless its cotton socks. It exists to give us free things and remind us of things we’d forgotten about. In this case, an elite Weekly task was to simply kill the Ropalolyst. A very easy 7,000 standing for anyone who’s completed the Sacrifice. Except… ugh, the Ropalolyst fight is bloody awful, for all the wrong reasons. A great fight, but easily ruined. And still broken, a year later. Don’t fight the Ropalolyst on public matchmaking! The Ropalolyst can be a very buggy fight for anyone who isn’t the host. Oh, the fight can bug out for the host… [Continue Reading]

The Brand New Disruption Game Mode

Disruption is a new game mode that was added alongside the rest of the Jupiter facelift update, combining the new tilesets, Alad V, the Sentients, the Corpus and Amalgams all in one place. It’s an endless game mode which scales worryingly fast and has a strange reward tier system. It’s also very dimly lit, unlike many other Jupiter tile sets. The premise is simple. You kill enemies, find conduit keys and shove them into corresponding terminals. You have to defend the terminals. But as each one is activated, Alad V will release a Demolyst, a strong, ability-resisting hulking red Amalgam.… [Continue Reading]

An Unwelcome Monologue

The Jovian Concord brings with it some very strange new… story elements. We discovered in the later end of Night Wave episode 1 that Alad V was making Amalgam beings – beings that were part Sentient, part something else, and that whole Sentient Hybrid thing is basically a massive part of this new update. Actually, it’s the main theme of this update, probably more so than “Jupiter gets a makeover”. There’s more Sentients in this update than on the Plains of Eidolon. And the Plains of Eidolon are covered with bits of dead Sentient. Spoilers ahead, by the way. But… [Continue Reading]

Space Mum’s Future

Yesterday, I wrote about the Lotus, the being most Warframe players lovingly call Space Mum. I mentioned the three recent quests that all put the Lotus in a very dark, very scary place, casting a massive shadow of doubt on who she is, what she wants and whether she is acting under her own free will. But I never really considered any of the potential futures for the Lotus. The Warframe universe is a very strange place and all sorts of randomness could happen – after all, not everyone expected that Warframes are controlled by ageless children but are also… [Continue Reading]

Teralysts, Gantulysts and Hydrolysts, oh my!

The Shrine of the Eidolon update brought with it some new Eidolon related things, as one might expect. Honestly it would be pretty weird for an update named after a thing to not contain said thing. But yes, as well as the Teralyst, you can now fight two new Eidolons, both of which are fucking huge and way bigger than the Teralyst. But at the same time they both kinda just look like the Teralyst with some small changes. If you’re still here, I’ll assume you’ve completed the War Within. Because you need your dumb space kid. Teralysts, Gantulysts, Hydrolysts… [Continue Reading]
